'Paul' and Conan Chase 'Beaver' to SXSW
All three films are highly anticipated, but for vastly different reasons. Paul, a road comedy about two men and an alien(!), is the third film starring and written by the Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz duo, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who spin genre comedy into nerd gold. Foster's The Beaver is the tale of a seriously disturbed man who connects with his loved ones using a beaver hand puppet, and he's played by notoriously disturbed man Mel Gibson. The O'Brien doc should excite audiences with a behind the scenes look at the struggles of the talk show host you love to root for.
The fest kicks off March 11th and runs through the 19th. Opening starts with Duncan Jones' Source Code, a thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan. (The Playlist)
